Young Orthodox Jew getting "handled" by a Jerusalem Light Rail ticket agent. That's right, not a Light Rail security officer, but a ticket agent.
Are ticket agents even authorized to take such actions?
Did he feel that his life was endanger?
What did this young, Orthodox Jewish man do to deserve this?
Ride without a ticket? Countless young English speaking have erred out of ignorance, yet are ticketed anyway.
Is Citipass so hard-up for funds, it needs to beat the fines out of the offending passengers?
The female agent appeared to do what she could to resolve the situation. Did she do enough? Why didn't she call the real police, light security, or at least her supervisor? Was she the supervisor?
Why weren't all of the Jews standing around doing anything? One took this video. But, I didn't even seen anyone else on their phones. Did you?
What if this young man had been younger? 15? 11? What about eight? Would they have still stood around, not doing anything?
As far as I know, this guy wasn't even a real cop, dressed as an agent!
Is this an example of the shape of things to come?
We will hopefully discover additional information to fill in the blanks.
Please comment if you know of anything of this incident.
